Ballarat Beat Rockabilly Festival and The George Hotel event manager Renee Radulovic told The Courier organisers were planning to run the event again next year.
She said the team would begin work as soon as possible to secure the closure of Lydiard Street for the 2020 event after celebrating a fun 2019 festival.
“We have had a really fantastic festival. Everyone has gone out of their way to dress up beautifully,” she said.

“This weekend becomes a time where it feels like you have stepped into the 50s in Ballarat, with vintage cars, people dressed up, dancing and music.
Everyone says this is one of the best rockabilly events in Victoria.Renee Radulovic, event manager
“They love coming here. We have people from as far as Perth and Queensland who travel to Ballarat for this event specifically.
“We have so much here for them and we put so much effort into this event. We like to provide everyone with a good atmosphere, good entertainment and we like putting on a community event.”
Organisers estimated a few thousand people attended the event throughout the weekend.
Many purchased tickets to see popular rockabilly bands, while others enjoyed vintage cars, fashion parades, the pin-up competition and dancing lessons.
The festival website states organisers hope to secure a new major sponsor for the 2020 event.
